OUR EXPOSITION LE'iTER.
The task of writing up an Expo
sition estimated to be worth fifty mil
lions of dollars , and embracing every
department of nature and of human
genius , skill and industry , and to give
the reader an intelligent conception
of its vastness and exhibits , is one of
the most difficult tasks ever alloted
the correspondent , and he may well
crave leniency in criticism should ho
fail , even in many particulars.
Constant comparisons are being
made of this Exposition with that
held at Philadelphia the Centennial
In foreign exhibits , especially those
made by the European governments ,
and in the art departments , it is con
ceded that the Fair of 1870 excelled
this one , as it also excelled any of its
old world predecessors. But our
Northwestern States and Territories ,
all and each of them , the Southern
slates , and general government , make
displays far superior to those made at
the Centennial. In new and im
proved machinery and in electric dis
plays , this Exposition also excels any
previous one , and is worth a voyage
around the globe , and as a school of
instruction , a month's careful study
of it would be more valuable to uie
student than a year in college.
Since the Art gallery was thrown
open to the public it has been con
stantly crowded with sight-seers , who
seem never to tire of gazing upon
the many beautiful works of art on
the walls and of statuary on the floor.
In these collections are many fine
pieces contributed by French , Ger
man , Belgian and 5lexican artists ,
while every American artist of note
is represented. At one end of the
allery hangs Thomas Hill's canvass
of the "Far West , " at the other Jos.
helmonski's "Snow-Bound Russia , "
each bringing out in rich coloring
the most striking features of their re
spective subjects. E. Keyser is rep
resented by "The Toying Page , "
which received the silver medal of
the Munich Academy , also by his
"Titania , " and "The Falconer , " all in
aronze. There is a strikingly life
like bronze bust of our great poet of
Nature Bryant by J. S. Hartly ,
strongly portraying the great traits
of the venerable poet. Louis Samain
sends among the Belgian exhibit ,
"L'Amour Maladroit "
upid's badly aimed arrow piercing
the bosom of his pet bird , at which
accident great tears roll down his ba-
cheeks. There are many fine wa
ter colors , pen and ink sketches ,
Tourches and sepia drawings , sent by
: he Scribner Publishing Company ,
and very many attractions on canvass ,
or in marble or bronze , which atone
n the pleasure of seeing them , for
the tardiness in opening the gallery ,
and it is now a most pleasing and in
structive feature of the Exposition.
The exhibits made by the colored
) eople in the north gallery of the
government building , from a dozen
or more states , have attracted much
attention , since the formal opening of
heir department , presenting a race
which in other fields has had a large
share of the world's attention , in a new
and more interesting light. Consid
ering their past history , and the cir
cumstances which have surrounded
; hem , their advancement and capabil-
ties revealed in these exhibits , must
greatly modify , if not entirely change ,
; ho estimate hitherto entertained of
he future of these people. Here are
ine needle-work draw-
- , paintings , -
ngs , and school exhibits , which bear
10 mean comparison with those of like
classes in other departments , while in
nechanical devices , machinery and
architecture , the samples on exhibi-
lon astonish the visitors , and elicit
nany remarks of admiration and
) raise. These classes of their work
are represented in models of dwel-
ings , in locomotives , constructed
vithout the advantage of apprentice-
hip , and in other machines , all of
which are most creditable and reveal
; he race in a most promising and
Another gallery in the same build
ng is occupied chiefly with exhibits
of woman's work , Dakota , Indiana ,
Nebraska , Minnesota , Iowa , Rhode
'sland , New Jersey , Kentucky , Mis-
issippi and Tennessee , each having
distinct spaces , and each filled with a
* ery fine display of beautiful articles
of use or ornament , with here and
here some patented machine or
lousehold"implement , the invention
of woman's mind. In the Iowa space
ire two busts of two distinguished
tatesmen , Ex-Senator James Harlan ,
and Justice Samuel Miller of the
Jnited States Supreme Court , mod
eled by Mrs. Ketcham , of Mt. Pleas-
int , who studied the Sculptor's art at
Washington , receiving instruction
rom the best masters at the Capital.
